Rune (7999) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2012
Poured from a bottle at Ølfestival 2012, One Pint exhibition stand, thanks to Skinnyviking for a taster. Dark amber coloured body, tiny beige head. Smell of sweaty hops with discreet malty sweetness. Malt-fruity flavour containing herbal hops and slightly roasted malts. Bittering malty endnotes. Satisfying (Copenhagen, 10.05.2012).

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
2013-05-31. Dark brown body, creamy tan head. 4+ Aroma is interestingly fruity, light notes of malt and green vegetation. 6++. Flavour is similarly fruity, light bitterness throughout, mild malt has some dusty caramel undertones and something vaguely leafy and herbal that I can’t put my finger on. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Okay. Bottle at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal

Bottle picked up by my dad in a Eataly, Genoa, late Sept/early Oct 2013. consumed at home Saturday 12th October 2013 Pours black with off-white head. A very hoppy nose with some resiny pine in particular showing. Mmmhh.. this is a tasty decent black IPA, there are flavours of caramel and roasted malts coming through but this is very hoppy and the finish is bitter and dry. Really like this.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
In short: A very hoppy (piney) and well malted (nutty, caramel) Black IPA. Good beer.
How: From a bottle at Montreal Mondial 2013.
The look: Cloudy mahogany body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: The hop-dominated nose is very scented-pine-tree with resinous undertones. Decent mouthfeel with medium body, texture a bit chewy, medium carbonation. Taste is nutty caramelized cereals. Almonds and an enormous hops presence that tastes like freshly cut pine-tree. A clean and crisp bitterness with only light resinous notes. A good Black IPA. I’m not sure what a hoppy cat is, but I love cats and I love living with a cat and I love my cat, all the time it spends grooming itself and vomiting makes me feel like I’m living with a supermodel.
